Analysis of Biological Development (K. Kalthoff)

Updates to Topic 02: The Role of Cells in Development


One reviewer has called this chapter a "stamp collection". My own students like it, especially those who have not had an upper division course in cell biology. One instructor, who will teach a Developmental Biology course that has Cell Biology as a prerequisite, wrote she still prefers for the chapter to be included for students with rusty memories. Did you find this chapter useful? (KK)

Clarifications and Corrections

In Fig. 2.3a, the uppermost diagram should be labeled "Late gastrula" instead of "Late neurula".
